College of Humanities, Arts, and Sciences

"B.F.A. Group Exhibition"

Opening Reception: Dec. 8 at 7 p.m. The following students are pursuing Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in their respective emphasis areas and are exhibiting new artwork to fulfill graduation requirements, printmaker and performance artist Bubble Gum (Mariah) Coffey and painter Spencer B. Jensen. All events are free and open to the public.

Spying on the Pope: The Religious Roots of the CIA

Michael Graziano, philosophy and world religions, will present "Spying on the Pope: The Religious Roots of the CIA." What does religion have to do with spycraft? During World War II, American spies focused on religious ideas and institutions, and the results helped shape the nature of the CIA that was created after the war, providing lessons for how the U.S. government thinks about religion and national security today.

 

Postmodern Jukebox at Gallagher Bluedorn

Proving that everything new can be old again, pianist Scott Bradlee has become a viral pop sensation after creating a series of clips for YouTube that finds him and his ad hoc group Postmodern Jukebox reworking 21st century pop hits in a variety of vintage styles -- transforming Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" into a '50s-style doo wop number, giving Macklemore's "Thrift Shop" a '20s jazz accent, crossing Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" with Irish folk music, and showing how Ke$ha's "Die Young" would work as a classic country tune.

*UNI Students may use their free student ticket for this show. Free student tickets will not be available until January 9, 2017 at 8:30 am.

Nick Offerman at Gallagher Bluedorn

The handmade-ukulele-wielding comedic artist best known for portraying Ron Swanson on NBC's Parks and Recreation comes to the Cedar Valley to perform his smash hit live show, Full Bush on the Gallagher Bluedorn stage. Full Bush features a veritable smorgasbord of cautionary tales, tunes, and tips for prosperity.

From lessons in manliness, to high-spirited sing alongs, to the occasional bout with nudity, Offerman's stage performances are inspirational experiences for those luck enough to attend. 

*This show is not eligible to use the free UNI student ticket.

Book launch and reading by Wendy Hoofnagle

Wendy Hoofnagle, languages and literatures, will read from her book "The Continuity and the Conquest: Charlemagne and Anglo-Norman Imperialism." Hoofnagle explores the Carolingian aspects of Norman influence in England after the Norman Conquest, arguing that the Normans’ literature of kingship envisioned government as a form of imperial rule modeled in many ways on the glories of Charlemagne and his reign.
